    Default FXRP bags on 84 FXRS

    I have a question about the 84 FXRS rear shock locations, I've read that there are two locations (forward and rear) and some bikes have them in front, others in the rear location. I believe they need to be in the rear location to mount some FXRP bags I just grabbed and also read that on earlier models they were in the rear (more vertical location) which sounds like it would permit mounting the bags as is. So are there two mounting locations on an 84 FXRS and the factory set up was the rear location or do they only have one hole to mount the shock which seems to be the rear location? Hope that wasn't confusing and I'm posting in the right place. Thanks everyone

    Phoenix, i have a 86 and a 88, the 86 has the shocks more upright, mounted in the rear position - the 88 has them more angled, mounted more forward.
    The 86 has only that one bolt hole for the shocks, the other one for the shocks more towards front, like on the 88, does not exist.

    When installing RP or rt saddlebags, you gotta use the squared off touring struts, not the rounded off ones. When you use those struts, you can't put mount the shocks in the forward location. You have nothing to worry about.

    Has anyone tried the K-tech tracker drop in cartridges ?

    An aluminum swingarm is cute but an FXR isn't an MV Agusta. IMO except for real race bikes that's just pissing away money.

    Swing arm repair is a pretty basic fab job. Weld up the worn areas then take 'em down with a flap disc, flap wheel and hand files.

    That's a VERY worn swingarm. I have over 100K miles on my '88 and it's fine, but I don't leave axle nuts loose. You can fix yours or replace with a good used one.

    Do you have all the parts listed in the parts book (buy one if you don't have it)? The axle rides in the axle adjusters and shouldn't wear the swingarm.

    Post pics of the damage.
    Wheels on right now as I'm still riding or I'd have pics. My apologies. I'll see if I can't grab some soon (i'm in crunch time for a motorcycle art show painting a helmet and tank and have almost no free time after work right now).
    I was worried that over time the weld would crack/crumble where the repair was, not sure if that's a rational fear. I'm a painter and very new to welding.

    The solid axle adjuster sounds like it might be most economical solution here. Weld up, flap disc flush, solid axle adjuster, done.
    Thanks for the advice folks.

    machined this mount to move the headlight assembly up .750 and out about 2" to fit better with a ness fairing. also used it to make mount the fairing itself.

    on my stock FXR I put 8'' risers and Iron 883 bars, so another 2 with pullback, and the speedo/tach cable is a little tight but work.

    It's probably a spam account that goes in an posts a copy paste comment from some other thread but with key words added to it to boost google rankings of whatever business hired them. In this case probably that helmet.

    A proper weld is as strong as the parent metal. Practice on scrap and bend test the result if you are not sure of your ability or equipment.
